True West by Sam Shepard
Playing at KD Studio Theater at the Trinity River Arts Center, True West opens Thursday, October 31 and runs
through November 17. The October 31 show opens at 7:30 p.m., while the remaining shows on Friday and
Saturday evenings begin at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday performances start at 2:00 p.m.
Directed by Bill Rhoten and Produced by Larry D. LeMaster, TWP Productions.
True West is a story about sibling rivalry between two estranged brothers who experienced the typical good boy
vs. bad boy dynamic, and who unexpectedly reconnect.
Shepard illustrates the duality of human personality, and our primitive instincts for violence against the
unavoidable family ties that usually discourage an individual from acting as wanted. In this case, a series of
emotional angry outbreaks take place as Austin can't defend himself: Is he frightened of Lee or does he admire
his brother's willingness to break the rules?
The two brothers gradually undergo a role reversal triggering a rollercoaster of emotions and actions.

True West has ... arguably become Shepard's signature piece, the leanest, most pointed of his fulllength works.
DAVID KRASNER, A Companion to Twentieth Century American Drama
Shepard's masterwork.... It tells us a truth, as glimpsed by a 37yearold genius.
New York Post
It's clear, funny, naturalistic. It's also opaque, terrifying, surrealistic. If that sounds contradictory, you're on to
one aspect of Shepard's winning genius; the ability to make you think you're watching one thing while at the
same time he's presenting another.
